Orthodontic procedures can help you get the best smile that you possibly can. They benefit your smile in more ways than just one. Orthodontics can improve your bite and prevent any wear and tear on your teeth. They also help straighten your teeth if needed to give you a symmetrical smile that is beautiful and youthful. This restorative treatment also helps the aesthetics of your jaw and your facial structure in general.
It is really important that you get evaluated as early as possible to see the best success with orthodontic procedures. Most orthodontists suggest that age seven is the best time to get screened to see if you or your child needs an orthodontic intervention. When orthodontic issues are caught early enough, there is a greater opportunity for a more effective treatment. Seven is considered a really great time for an evaluation because by that time, the molars are in place enough to establish the back bite, which is a good starting point. The potential for growth is at the maximum level at this age and time period.
If you were not able to have an early prevention and you are well into adolescence or adulthood, there are still many different orthodontic options that you can complete to help you get the smile that you’ve always wanted. You are not too old to complete orthodontic treatment!
Invisalign® is a wonderful new way to straighten your teeth without metal braces. Instead, you will use a series of clear mouth trays that are custom-molded to your teeth. They gradually move your teeth to their appropriate positions and they are gentler on your mouth than other types of orthodontic procedures.
Corrective jaw surgery is a surgical procedure that is sometimes recommended for adults who have skeletal issues with their jaws and teeth. This jaw surgery can correct many different problems of the facial bone structure. Jaw surgery is done with a full comprehensive orthodontic treatment that improves your overall facial profile and occlusion.
